Only her friends bail on her at the last minute, leaving Jillian to face her sexual re-awakening on her own. A wrong turn lands her at the mercy of Jackson Burke. A cowboy who knows how to seduce a woman with just a look. And seduce her he does, much to her delight. The chemistry between them is explosive. So when he asks her to forget going to the dude ranch and stay at his ranch with him for the week, she accepts, eager to experience more of the fiery passion they’d already shared. But will a week with Jackson be enough to sate the hunger this sexy cowboy has awakened in her?

First off, I liked LEATHER AND LUST more than I should have. Okay, now that that is out of the way… There were some editing issues and inconsistencies of some pretty basic things that could have been caught and fixed. The biggest one for me was the magically changing clothing that caused a couple "WTF?" moments on my part.

Jillian (and her girlfriends) are TSTL. She's cowardly and immature. Jackson was okay though from what little info could be gleaned from his dialog. Definitely very hot! Not much character development here, so equally, not much to really say about them. Five minutes after they meet, they're already having wild monkey sex… while I know that might work for some, I prefer some more story and character development. And while, toward the end, there were some romantic elements, they fell flat. This is nothing but porn.

Overall, like I said up top, I liked this one more than I probably should have. The writing was decent, the pacing was great, the sex hot. There was potential for some real romance and I really would have liked to see that developed more. As it stands though, I just couldn't swallow that they loved each other. Not when every scene they were in it was a sex scene. So… it was somewhat enjoyable, but not something I plan on reading again. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes erotica looking for a quick afternoon escape. Personally, Jackson is worth the read! Talk about HOT!!
